Bruising and Swelling after Lip Filler Injection
Thank you for your question. This looks like typical bruising and swelling after injection. It can take up to 2 weeks for this to resolve. Avoid taking NSAID’s like Ibuprofen as the cause the blood to thin leading to more bruising. If you are having pain you can take Tylenol. You can ice the area to help reduce swelling. If you are not happy with your results after all swelling and bruising resolves you can have it dissolved with hyaluronidase. I hope this information helps. Best of Luck!
Lip bump and dent after injections
This is still within the norm after 3 days. This should all settle down in a week or so. If still concerned at day 10-14, please discuss with your doctor.
Swelling and bruising are common after lip injections. The lump you feel may be a part of that. It can take up to two weeks for the swelling to resolve. If after that time you are unhappy with your results, return to your injector for an evaluation.

Bumps and Bruising After Lip Injections
Some small lumps or hard bumps after lip injections can be normal. The site where the needle was inserted into the skin can swell into lumps similar to what you are describing. Some bruising is possible as well, and the amount you have in your photos is within what is considered normal after 3 days. This will go down over time - typically 3-7 days.
If you have any questions or concerns, however, I recommend you contact your doctor who injected you. It is a good idea to stay in close contact with them if you aren't sure about how you are healing.
Give yourself at least 2 weeks to allow your lips to fully heal and have the final result you are looking for.
Best of luck!
Knowing What's Normal with Lip Augmentation with Fillers (juvederm, restylane)
This looks like typical bruising and swelling which can last 1-2 weeks after your procedure, but will resolve. If you're unhappy with your final results you can have it reversed with Hyaluronidase and try a different technique next time. Best, Dr. Emer
Bruising/swelling after lip filler injection
Bruising and swelling are not uncommon after lip filler injection and this appears like bruising at the injection sites. Unless something changes, I would give the lips time to heal before assessing your results. It can take up to 14 days for the bruising to resolve. Hang in there!
